A huge enormous and very belated THANKYOU to amazing @belyndahenryart for this exquisite work on paper, which just returned from the framers and is so beautiful!!!

For those who missed Belynda's TDF Collect exhibition with us last year, be sure to follow her on Instagram as she is currently working towards a show at Koskela in Sydney...!!

Today on TDF, the unique Croydon home of fashion designer @christopher_graf and his partner Glenn Francis, an IT analyst. Christopher and Glen's home is full of surprises - like this collection of vintage ventriloquist dolls, who live in the spare bedroom. ‘We often joke they are to deter people from wanting to stay overnight’ says Christopher!
